Are AC Tune-Ups Worth It?

Planning yearly AC maintenance is useful.

Tune-ups keep your air conditioner equipment in Ocala operating at its top performance while keeping electricity consumption down. It also could even help extend its life span.

While there are a couple tasks you can do alone, you should call the Experts, like the ones at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, for AC examinations and maintenance.

Here are a few steps you can do by yourself as you prepare for cooling season.

Get Your AC Service Set

Spring is a time of rejuvenation, and to many that involves a large portion of home, garage and yard freshening. With the toastier temps approaching, it’s also a fantastic idea to put AC maintenance on that listing.

Spring is a great time of year to get your cooling equipment freshened and checked out. Waiting to flip it on until the first warm day of the summer can be a gamble. If you have to have repair or a new unit, you may be waiting days for a technician. And that may become very unpleasant.

And for people with allergies, being ahead of the game with a fresh air conditioning system will help provide the best indoor air quality while it’s pollen season.

Also, AC upkeep might be mandatory for your equipment’s manufacturer warranty or any applicable extended warranty.

Can I Complete a Tune-Up Myself?

There are steps that you can do to help keep your AC system in the best condition:

  • Change your air filter. Dirty filters limit airflow and could lower your equipment’s efficiency. While the replacement timeline depends on the type of filter you install, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends each month or two. This is very necessary if you suffer from allergies or have pets in your home.
  • Lawn upkeep by the outside condenser. Make sure there’s not any grass, weeds or bushes near your AC system. We advise keeping 2–3 feet of open room. You should also remove any leaves or twigs that have dropped into your system, as this could limit airflow.
